With the first falling leaves, we’re reaching for our warmer clothes, and as the days become chillier, our layers pile up. Then one morning you’re outside and the temperature went back up and you’re sweating like crazy. It’s just that time of the year when no matter what you chose to wear you end up making a mistake. So, for all of you who want to keep things casual and not worry too much about their outfits, the following few tips will help you always look trendy without feeling too hot or too cold during this transitional weather.
Stick to your maxi dresses
If you’ve loved maxi dresses during the blazing summer, you’ll adore them in the fall even more. Putting on your short sleeve maxi is a safe way of staying stylish and warm during colder months. You’ll easily throw over your denim jacket and a pair of mules, get your sunnies and a crossbody bag and head out to a pleasant day. For a bit more dressed up combo, swap the mules for ankle boots and a denim jacket for a biker one to add some edge to your casual ensemble.
Kick it well
The previous few seasons have been all about keeping our feet comfortable. No longer do we need to make our feet suffer in order to follow the latest trends, and that’s precisely this season’s motto as well. With a trendy pair of kicks, you’ll look fabulous and be able to walk for miles when running errands. So, start your online search and shop for women’s sneakers that will go perfect with your high-rise jeans and a funky raincoat. When the weather gets breezy, swap the raincoat for a beige furry bomber jacket and layer a white t-shirt under it. With a navy blue beret, you’ll look sassy and ready for windy afternoons.
Tie it up
Scarves are inevitable in the fall, so get your arsenal ready for the next few months. With a new scarf in your collection, you’ll effortlessly freshen up last year’s wardrobe while also keeping yourself cosy. An extra-long thin scarf tied loosely around the neck is just one of the ways to make your dress more put-together. Combine your trench coat with a scarf neatly tied around your neck to elevate your autumn outfit. If you’re about to go shopping, invest in scarves with tassels.
Add tights to the mix
Do you want to play with pattern, colour and texture and not give up your precious summer dresses and skirt just yet? If so, add tights to your fall wardrobe. Some of the best options would be opaque tights. Go for a pair of grey textured tights and match them with your favourite khaki skirt and boots to get the ultimate autumn ensemble. If tights are not really your cup of tea, then try leggings. They will go great with a tunic and knee-high boots. Throw over a raincoat or a trench and you’ll be all set for breezy autumn.
Keep yourself warm
Layers are the key to keeping you warm. Aside from being fabulously functional, layers are also very fashion-forward. To be sure you’re doing it right, follow the rule of layering long over lean. Throw longer-length tops such as tunics or boyfriend cardigans over tights or skinny jeans. Furthermore, a shirt under a sweater under a bomber jacket is a perfect combo for mild autumn days. When the temperatures go further down, amp up your jacket game with a long, chunky wool coat. A black turtleneck sweater in combination with black leather pants under a beige wool coat will make you look classy and autumn-ready. Depending on the occasion, you can complete the look with black high-heel ankle boots or opt for Oxford shoes.
Fall is one of the best seasons to experiment with your wardrobe. With so many layers you can play all you want and make dressing up the most fun you’ve ever had. Not only will you be fashion-forward but stay warm at the same time, which is very important if you want to avoid sniffling until spring. So, look for stylish trench coats, add a new scarf around your neck, layer it up and don’t forget tights to prolong the life of your summer skirts into the autumn season.
